The committee met, pursuant to notice, at Hyde chairman of the committee presiding.
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: Lewis's seven Chronicles of Narnia were treated a little like "hand-me-down" clothes which are passed down from big to little children and are immediately given up when the little ones outgrow them.
Now that people are returning to the old distinction between stories which can only be read by children and those which can be enjoyed by people of all ages, the Narnian books occupy a position on something like a "Jacob's Ladder" and are continually being passed up and down from young to old, from old to young, depending on which member of the family discovers them first.
Of the million copies of the Chronicles sold in England and the United States last year, about half were bought by college students.
Professor Tolkien's Hobbit and Lord of the Rings grew out of the stories he told his children, but Lewis, who was a bachelor for most of his life and knew little about children, wrote fairy tales simply because he liked them himself and because he found them the best art-form for what he had to say.

But it is most about Peter who was the youngest. They all had to go away from London suddenly because of the Air Raids, and because Father, who was in the army, had gone off to the War and Mother was doing some kind of war work.
They were sent to stay with a relation of Mother's who was a very old Professor who lived by himself in the country. The next we hear of the book is from Chad Walsh who says that, when he visited Lewis in the summer ofhe talked [End Page 12] "vaguely of completing a children's book which he had begun "in the tradition of E.
